Recommended carpet cleaners, by Consumer Reports

“While today’s carpets resist stains and soiling better than ever, no carpet is fully stain-proof,” says Consumer Reports. “There’s certainly no lack of cleaning options, including buying a carpet-cleaning machine, renting one, or hiring a pro. We tried them all. While nothing beat the ease and performance of a pro, some of the machines we tested came pretty close for less money.”

Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended carpet cleaners. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.

Bissell ProHeat 2X9200

Overall score: 60

Bissell ProHeat 25A3

Overall score: 58
